Stay away from Toshiba. I have owned just about every make of laptop and I have had nothing but disappointment with it. It was in the shop 3 times in the first 3 months. The volume is so low I cab barely her it. Toshiba tech support is the worst I've used. HP and Dell are excellent products and Dell has excellent tech support. I hope this helps.
I agree Toshiba has some of the worst computer products around, especially with regards to laptops.
